Can you make the IP interface for the TV Box available to the Logitech Harmony remote? 0 Recommended Answers 3 Replies 0 Upvotes
The Google Fiber TV Box can be controlled via IP using the Fiber App on a phone. But the IP interface needs to be open to external developers like the Logitech Harmony remote.
If you're not familiar with them, the Harmony Hub is a small device that can pair with a phone interface or a physical remote. It has an incredibly simple interface to add Devices (TVs, receivers, switches, lights or nearly anything) and then add an Activity. So one might have an Activity called Watch TV that will turn on the TV box, turn on the TV, turn on the AV receiver, switch the TV to the right input, the receiver to the right input, etc.
Many newer devices have IP interfaces. Like I just installed a TCL Roku TV and a Vizio Sound Bar and both had IP interfaces that the Logitech Harmony remote. This is far more reliable than sending IR flashes. I have a big home theater installation and the only thing that still requires an IR flasher is the TV Box.
Please, publish the spec. Make it open. And let Logitech's engineers find the TV Boxes on the network and control them reliably.
